Dinner with Georgette at NYTW
"Funny and charmingly tender." - The New Yorker
Contemporary farce meets queer fantasia, a world premiere about two gay college lovers and their tangled experiences in the closet.
Balti and Jaker begin the play as two gay 20 year-olds enjoying the romantic and sexual possibilities on their contemporary college campus. But when Jaker asks Balti to pretend to be straight for the duration of Jaker's grandmother's visit to campus, a spiraling journey begins in the friends' consciousness. Balti finds himself traveling back in time, stumbling upon the mystifying voices of a Cherub, a rattlesnake, a war child, and other peculiar characters along the way.
